Description 

The Grey Cliffs Picnic Area is on the north side of the road just up canyon from the entrance to the Little Mill Campground (which contains Division Wall, among others).

There is a large parking lot that has room for eight or so cars, a bulletin board, and a bathroom.


Getting There 

Drive up the canyon past the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, watching for the entrance to the Little Mill Campground on your right.

Shortly after passing the campground entrance a sign on the left announces the picnic area. Don't pull in at the first, small parking area for one or two cars; wait for the larger lot, shown here.

A couple of pockets along the way help out, then a committing couple of moves on less-than-satisfactory feet gets you established under the roof.A burly-but-well-protected move over the roof will have you heaving a sigh of relief (and cursing the local shrubbery).After the roof, pa...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
